About a month ago, I suddenly got a few signal problems with channel 4, e4, film 4 and itv. Now they won't work at all. I'm still receiving great signal from the bbc channels though. Does anybody know what might be the cause?

oliver marland: Logically, if there is nothing wrong with the transmitter, it has to be you. Sounds like you've an aerial system fault which has got to the point that its totally gone. Likely a break somewhere, which has become final.
